haha, yes shame on me. but really that song in any year is skip-able to me. and with the dozens of boards i have from those years, its especially tiring. of course there are exceptions. and still not as bad as Mexicali Blues tho ;)

I don't think Mexicali Blues ever really had a "height" or a time when it was super-amazing. I like it OK (can take it or skip it, depending on my mood), but it's also really the only Dead song whose lyrics I have a problem with. A girl who's just 14? Um, yeah, I know Lolita had been seen as an avant-garde book just a few years earlier, and I know it's a character speaking and you can analyze it as showing the depths of his decline, yada yada, but still .....

For some reason I don't mind Jack Straw's women-sharing party before he cuts down his buddy, or Loose Lucy and her oh-so-60s delightfulness, but a 14-year-old girl is not so easy to take. Not that I'd skip it for that reason, LOL. If it were as good as an early-ish MAMU, for instance, I wouldn't :-)

They grow old fast in Mexicali...

Anyway, this could be the same chick Felina who was in El Paso. Didn't say how old she was there, just called her a "young maiden"...
